The Wysis Way

A walk of 55 miles through Gloucestershire between the rivers Wye, Severn & Thames, and linking two national trails, the Offa's Dyke Path & The Thames Path.

From the Wye bridge at Monmouth the Wysis Way follows Offa's Dyke Path up to the Kymin before striking off eastwards through the Forest of Dean to the prominence of May Hill where the view compliments the old adage "blessed is the eye between Severn and Wye".

Continuing through the Vale of Leadon the walk crosses the Severn at Gloucester before climbing the Cotswold Scarp. From Robinswood Hill above the city May Hill is seen in the west against the background of the Welsh hills.

After crossing the high wold to Bisley the Wysis Way descends to the valley of the Frome, rich in industrial history, before following the line of the Severn & Thames canal up to the watershed at Thameshead where the Isis, highest tributary of the Thames emerges from the limestone.

"I am writing to let you know how much we appreciated your excellent guide... we particularly enjoyed the mixture of information about places we passed through intermixed with route finding directions. I have walked quite a number of long distance footpaths and found your format a very satisfactory one" ~ A.S. Surrey

"It is an excellent book, clear description of the route, additional information to make the walk more interesting and clear maps to ensure being on the correct path..." ~ R.S. Abergavenny

"We really enjoyed walking part of teh Wysis Way last week... we shall do the rest sometime. The book and maps were very good and very straightforward to follow." ~ L.H. Cheshire
